Fit Travel: LA Winter Getaway

Trade shoveling snow for pumping iron on Muscle Beach, hiking the Santa Monica Mountains and peddling past Hollywood’s most outrageous homes.

Café Gratitude
The restaurant is 100 percent organic and vegan, and the menu items are named things like “I Am Peace,” “I Am Outstanding,” and “I Am Comforted.” The dishes behind these positive-sounding plates include coconut and zucchini ceviche, raw corn enchiladas, and Indian curried lentils. And don't worry--meat eaters will be satisfied with the eggplant parmesan and the veggie burger.

M Café Hollywood
Food is made from scratch without the use of refined sugars, dairy, eggs, meat or poultry, with a big focus on in-season vegetables.  A hearty fast food alternative, M Café prepares quick, healthy food options and freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices. Try the “Big Macro” veggie burger or the wild salmon and asparagus wrap.

Wood & Vine
This pre-prohibition style restaurant implements a farm-to-table approach—every day chefs scour local farmers’ markets to find the freshest ingredients. The menu changes slightly every day depending on what’s available. Popular items include the roasted beet salad, braised spinach, and striped sea bass. You’ll also love Wood & Vine's bulked-up beer selection.
